Varying Playback Levels
These shows ARE wonderful, and as another reviewer wrote, the audio levels vary quite a bit. There is a great solution for this though. There is a FREEWARE program called MP3DirectCut, and it can edit MP3 files DIRECTLY, without having to decode them first, and then re-encode them (which loses sound quality). The program has a NORMALIZE function which can also operate in batch mode to normalize an entire folder full of MP3 files. In one easy operation, you can normalize all your MP3 files (any bitrate) to 0 db adn there will be no distortion or loss of quality. Get it at http://mpesch3.de1.cc/mp3dc.html.

Great Quality! Especially "Treasure of Sierra Madre"
Really great quality, especially "Treasure of Sierra Madre" and I listened to part on early Boston Blackie show. The only problem I have is the sound levels vary. So if I listen at night in bed, I have to get up and adjust the sound at the computer.
